A Morning Hike

This morning Adrian and I decided to enjoy the beautiful day and go for a hike.  We are blessed by the location of our apartment; as our backyard just so happens to be a mountain.  I usually go to yoga every morning, but this weekend I got stung by a bee and my face is quite unsightly and swollen (if you needs a visual, think quasimodo!). As a result, I was in no mood to show off my hideous face in public.  So I put on my sunglasses (to cover the swollenness) and we trekked up the mountain.

As some of you know, I am no fan of running, but hiking proved to be a good alternative.  That mountain kicked my butt and I was sweating up a storm.  When we reached ground level my legs were quite shakey and in need of a good stretch.

This part of the path, in this shot, is actually quite flat, but the majority of the hike was a pretty steep climb.

Once we made it to one of the peaks at the top, I was in need of a little rest and a snack. I slurped some leftover GM from my breakfast while enjoying the lovely view.

It’s always nice to have a good buddy to hike with to encourage you along the way! Adrian always proves to be a good support!

Hopefully my face will be back to normal tomorrow so that I will be able to make it to yoga and work. I did not think I could face hundreds of little curious Korean students questioning me about my strange appearance.

Take Care,

    • Yeah, I purposefully wore the sunglasses to hide the hideousness that was my face!
      But today I am back to normal and can recognize myself in the mirror.
      Thanks for asking 🙂

    • I truly believe that yoga is the best exercise. I do not do any strenuous heart pounding exercise, just lots of
      walking, but since I have been doing yoga i have noticed a drastic improvement in my body…I can actually
      see that I have abs now…so stick with the yoga, it rocks!
